Shortcut Macros

Description

The Shortcut Macros plugin allows you to set up a shortcut for text or links that you use often – saves typing.

Usage

When creating a post/page, enter a macro that you have set up (##example). When the post is saved (as a draft or published), this macro will be automatically expanded to the full text you have set up for it.

Known Issues

This works only in the body of the post/page, not the title.

Installation

  1. Download the plugin archive and expand it (you’ve likely already done this).
  2. Put the ‘shortcut-macros.php’ file into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress Administration area and click ‘Activate’ for Shortcut Macros.
  4. Go to Options > Macros to create your macros.
